45 Degree Leg Press Calf Raise Overview

This is a variation to machine calf raise that focuses on the muscles of your calves. Since the calf is a very stubborn muscle, it requires a high training frequency to train.

It helps with injury prevention, strengthens bones, and improves lower body development. The exercise enhances flexibility and endurance as well. You can easily incorporate this exercise on full-body workout days and leg days.

How to Do It

  • Load the weight on the machine and sit down.
  • Place your feet on the sled and take a shoulder-width stance.
  • Keep the safeties locked if possible, and extend your legs.
  • Let your heels hang after placing your feet at the base of the platform.
  • Dorsiflex your ankles until your calves are fully stretched.
  • Flex the calves and extend the ankles to get back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the desired number of reps.

45 Degree Leg Press Calf Raise Tips

  • Keep your feet positioned at the base of the platform.
  • Keep your reps slow and controlled.
  • In case of any pain at the back of the knee joint, avoid complete lockout.
  • Try your best to move through the ball of your foot instead of the base of the toes.
